How To Help
1. Make sure your animals always wear visible identification, and are microchipped. Keep the microchip record updated with your current contact information. Register your pet's microchip information with AVID, Home Again or any company providing the microchip. You will find the name of the microchip company on the chip itself.

How do I write a letter to a newspaper?
To send a letter to the editor of one or all of the local newspapers, write to the email addresses listed above or mail directly to the mailing address of the newspaper. They prefer letters of 300 words or less, and letters must be signed and include an address or phone number for verification. Each letter is important for letting them know what readers think. They print very few letters, so do not be discouraged if your letter is not chosen for publication. Your letter may appear in the next issue of the newspaper. It is acceptable to send the same letter to more than one newspaper.
